2017 Honda HR-V: Driving pleasure and versatility

A spacious interior for the 2017 Honda HR-V
If we opt for the Honda HR-V, it’s because we are looking for a vehicle that is not too big, but is still versatile and spacious. With a 688-liter cargo capacity in front-wheel drive models and 657 liters of cargo space in all-wheel drive trims, the 2017 Honda HR-V offers plenty of space. With the rear seat lowered, cargo space climbs to 1,665 liters.
In addition, the HR-V is equipped with a Magic Seat rear seat that offers up to 5 configurations for the HR-V’s cargo area, which means it can transport all kinds of objects such as tall plants and bikes which are usually difficult to haul around.
Both front and rear passengers benefit from generous head, leg and elbow room. On the other hand, the HR-V’s dimensions are compact which means that the SUV is easy to drive in and around the city. Easy to park, the 2017 Honda HR-V also offers agile handling and a short turning radius.
